A Pear Tree

I know I'm surely not the most beautiful tree For my leaves and form are really quite plain All year I quietly stand and bide my time In the fall I bear fruit, the waiting not in vain.. Finally my branches yield globes of green an gold I bear their weight with pride and such delight With reluctant pleasure at last I let them go My yearly efforts a beautiful fall delight... The season passes and comes the rain and snow Then it seems in a much different role I'm cast For a lovely partridge on my branch will perch And just perhaps I am really beautiful at last...... 8/5/15
